In looking into history for this particular day, Friday the 13th (I don't believe in luck or bad luck myself!), I discovered many items but this one caught my attention as I am a dog lover after all!

FROM THE U T SAN DIEGO ARCHIVES:

"On this day in 1942, the Quartermaster Corps (QMC) of the United States Army begins training dogs for the newly established War Dog Program, or “K-9 Corps.”

  2. Dogs are incredible! They love us unconditionally and are capable of unbelievable things. My husband just read me an article about a dog that has been able to sniff out cancer!
